Description

Conference Summary

The Inquiry into ‘Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham’ by Professor Alexis Jay 2014 and the UK Children's Commissioner's Report ‘Protecting Children from Harm’ November 2015 both highlighted the importance of specialist training for all professionals involved with Child Sexual Abuse. The ongoing Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) has acknowledged that these crimes present unique challenges for professionals working with victims and their families and the perpetrators of Child Sexual Abuse

Who can benefit from this conference?

Anyone who works in child protection can benefit from gaining an insight into the behaviour of sexual perpetrators. This understanding better equips professionals and others to better protect our children and young people.

Proposed Learning Outcomes

Conference attendees will gain insight into the following:

  • Perpetrator stereotypes
  • Societal perceptions and attitudes
  • Common myths regarding perpetrators
  • Conceptual framework for understanding perpetrator behaviour
  • Perpetrators in a position of trust
  • Three levels of ‘On Street’ perpetrator behaviour
  • Interpreting the behaviour of sexual abuse victims

Case study examples will be shown and actual perpetrators speaking candidly on video about their offending behaviour to demonstrate parts of the conceptual framework. Case studies will also be used to demonstrate how the combination of knowledge regarding victims and perpetrator can enable professionals to work effectively with those affected by Child Sexual Abuse.
